The Learning Renaissance

Lesson Closure Ideas

The idea that the lesson is far more than an opportunity for information transfer is central to the idea of a learning renaissance.

To this end, Todd Finlay offers these ideas that make the lesson experience more meaningful by involving students in some reflective learning to allow them to absorb the lesson and make it part of their individual and shared knowledge and experience.

I’d strongly endorse this approach, both for students, and as a useful exercise in reflective learning and continuous improvement across staff.

Closure ends a lesson and creates a lasting impression, so make it fun. Students will better retain information reinforced with music, movement, art, or play.
